Gravic co-sponsored the Porsche factory excursion on 17 May. Attendees visited the Porsche manufacturing plant – a NonStop user – in Leipzig. Participants took a guided tour through the production lines where the cars are made to perfection, and then rode with drivers in a Panamera or a comparable Porsche on a speedy racetrack. All attendees greatly enjoyed this event! Congratulations to Lars Andro from Ingenico (Germany) for winning our Visa gift card prize!
